Acute intermittent porphyria

Diagnosis and Testing

Who else in my family should I test for acute intermittent porphyria?

If you or a family member has had a genetic testing for acute intermittent porphyria (AIP) and a mutation was found in the HMBS gene, other blood relatives can be tested. Siblings of a person with AIP have a 50% chance of also having AIP. Children of a person with AIP also have a 50% chance of having AIP. Even though someone in the family has AIP, it doesn't always mean that there will be other people in the family who has it as well.
